Jeppscotch ~ The Roll & Scratch Dice Game

Jeppscotch Roll & Scratch Dice Game
Jeppscotch Roll & Scratch Dice Game
Jeppscotch is a mesmerizing strategical dice game for 2-3 players, best played with three.

There are traditionally two kinds of modern standalone strategic dice games and they are:

  • Roll & Write
  • Roll & Draw

These kinds of games require the basic equipment of some dice, some paper or marking cards and some coloured pens or pencils.

Jeppscotch is a new third kind I have developed for this particular genre and it is known as:

  • Roll & Scratch

This third kind, Roll & Scratch, is actually the oldest of all dice genres, yet bizarrely it has never yet been awarded true status. So hereby, it is my duty to enthrone the oldest of pastimes with this, my monumental debut game, Jeppscotch.

Roll & Scratch does not use pens or paper, but:

  • Chalk and a chalkable surface, or;
  • Sticks and a scratchable surface

So for example, you could play this in a playground, on a beach or even in the streets.

If keeping score is awkward given your particular environment, then a pencil and paper may be used for this one element. The game in proper however, should still nevertheless be played with either chalks or sticks.

Dr. Auguste Piccard

Read our Mission Statement

“(The Earth) seemed a flat disc with an upturned edge.”
~ Dr. Auguste Piccard (1884 – 1962), the first man to reach the stratosphere.

Once ago, people were taught to trust in their senses and question magic. Today, people are taught to ignore their senses and trust in magic.

Indeed you have probably never heard of this Swiss physicist, inventor and explorer, because since the dawn of the space race, the only name you remember now is NASA.

Yet it is true, of all the hundreds upon hundreds of scientific studies and experiments, there is even the genuine artefact, beheld by a true space faring gentleman.

God bless Dr. Auguste Piccard and God bless Galearthéa.

My Paragraph & Word On Brexit

Flag Of Panceltainia
Flag Of Panceltainia
You won’t find me dropping dead in a Jobcentre after being declared “fit for work”, or lying on a hospital floor because Tories can’t afford to buy beds. You won’t find me polishing the shoes of a racist lunatic who refuses to acknowledge the Celtic right to self determination and independence. You won’t find me saluting a paedophile establishment that has covered up its crimes for as long as we can remember, while today, rape is effectively decriminalized because… you guessed it, Tories can’t afford to pay cops. You won’t find me bowing to an unelected monarch who wants to claim a poverty grant and buy herself a $7.9m apartment in New York, all the while laughing off her daughter in law’s death with the words, “Someone must have greased the brakes”. You won’t find me singing the national anthem of a country whom’s self proclaimed “greatness” is founded upon the colonisation and persecution of innocent and defenceless indigenous people across the world. You won’t find me looking up the word “stupid” in an English dictionary because everyday a fascist looks at me that way. You won’t find me walking amongst a society which has not a single Holy Nun to its name and whom’s definition of religious culture is giving lip service to a smart phone. You won’t find me in “great” Britain. This is Panceltainia. This is The United Sovereign States Of Europe.

Amen.

The Wizard’s Dwelling ~ Unto The Sacred Folly

Wizard's Dwelling ~ Philodor Opening
Wizardry in the Philodor Opening
The Law Of The Folly is described in detail and studied extensively throughout this blog. Yet whilst the articles contained here are comprehensive, there is one element of this new practise of Classical Chess which I have decided to publish only as a separate thesis, or to say, only as an accompanying element.

Granted this thesis is designed to be compatible and even a good spouse to Follying, but it is of course always up to the individual player what rules to employ in their gameplay.

This additional element to Follying, hereby known and referred to as The Wizard’s Dwelling, is indeed a fabulous work of Chess variantism. Yet it is important to mention that I have not created this element of the game to be compulsory within the rules.

For it does touch closely… with magic.

Nevertheless, as has always been the case with the evolution of Chess, throughout history controversial rules were invented which even today people maintain their reservations about.

These rules, such as En-Passant, Castling, Double Queens or various promotion enhancements, are no different to the concepts you are about to discover within The Wizard’s Dwelling, yet, these rules are today the standard of international competition Chess.

It would only therefore be prudent to consider the tremendous entertainment value of this well crafted wizardy you are about to read.

Suo Gân ~ National Anthem Of Panceltainia

“Suo Gân” is a traditional Welsh lullaby written by an anonymous composer.

It was first recorded in print around 1800 and the lyrics were notably captured by the Welsh folklorist Robert Bryan (1858–1920). The song’s title simply means lullaby (suo = lull; cân = song).

The Squire Of Celtainia

Squire Of CeltainiaCornissia, like the other Celtic countries of these lands, would be a dear Republic. That is to say, a country without a Monarchy or King and Queen.

A republic is a form of government in which the country is considered a “public matter”, its laws decided by a process of democracy and is not ever to be the private property of an unelected or hereditory ruler. A republic is thus the opposing form of government to a monarchy and has therefore no monarch as head of state.

The problem with “Britain” is that it has been conditioned for centuries to admire the regular parading of an authoritative figure dressed in gold and rubies, yet who has no say in political matters only the declaration of war… and even though this tradition makes absolutely no democratic sense.
